Equal Without Compromise Pride 2020
Alberta Party Acting Leader, Jacquie Fenske has issued the following statement in recognition of Pride Month in Alberta.
"Being accepted for who you are is a fundamental shift happening in Alberta and around the world. More needs to be done to protect, encourage and empower our LGBTQ+ Community. The Alberta Party is proud to be an ally to the community, and we live the value of inclusiveness in our organization. We believe that Albertans should be Equal Without Compromise".
"We call on the Government to put equality at the top of their priorities as they craft policies that act against the best interests of all Albertans. Specifically the elimination of school GSA Club protections, which have resulted in students being marginalized and set back the progress that had been made in many communities around Alberta."
"Recently Calgary joined the list of Municipalities banning conversion therapies and we hope to see many more joining that cause and thankful they are all setting the example for other Alberta communities."
"More needs to be done, this year the theme for the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia is "Breaking the Silence". Join our membership in starting these conversations about what homophobia, biphobia, transphobia is, how we can begin working against the roadblocks in our province and work on ways to show our support."
